Our first meeting in April was a trip to the Detroit Model Railroad Club to do a photo shoot for there next years calendar. This meant the scavenger hunt photo end date will be at or May 19 meeting. (1st meeting in May will be canceled due to some members being on a photo shoot trip.) So if not complete, use this time to complete your scavenger hunt photos. Hope to se many different ideas with the additional time for each scavenger item.
An "Our Community" photo challenge will begin in May and will probably be a summer project. Discussion of rules will be at the May 19th mtg.

Any 'altered more than simple post editing' photos should be entered in the Open or Modified categories. This does not mean normal post editing like exposure, contrast, shadow, highlight, tone, misc. This would be photos that are comprised of more than one or merged items, or extremely altered.
We no longer have a monthly competition. It is a photo improvement review with suggestions and input. It allows members to see the creativeness of other members and to question and learn new technics and methods of taking as well as editing their own photos. Members are ask to bring their photos on a thumb drive to the 2nd meeting of the month (3rd Thurs), they are loaded to the club laptop for viewing. Photos need to be grouped together by categories for ease of loading to computer. Each member is encouraged to elaborate on their photos but not required ( what inspired them to take the photo, where, when why & how. Any special editing or procedures used to take the photo). And ask for or share tips for improving theirs and other members photos as well.
